Hi everyone, this morning I wanted to share this TEDx talk about the rise of the micro-entrepreneur, that Julie did at UCL back in 2013. It’s a testament to how much work Julie does behind the scenes of Women Unlimited, whether it’s speaking, judging awards, mentoring micro-business owners or spreading her message of ‘you can do it too!’
I love this talk, because it shows not only Julie’s journey, but it gives us ‘real world’ examples of people who have built a successful business by simply taking an idea (in their own small corner of the world) and running with it.
She inspires us to stop looking at the problem of either not having a job, or having a job you don’t want, and embrace the benefits of micro-entrepreneurism; and to take full advantage of the rewards and freedoms it offers. She also sensibly talks about balancing the two, until you reach the tipping point of being able to become a full-time micro-entrepreneur. So grab a cuppa and take a few minutes to think about what you can achieve in your own small corner…
